Corporate Governance

APRIL Group has clear and well-developed corporate governance processes. It upholds strict corporate governance and business ethics standards by which all employees are contractually bound to abide. These standards include provisions for fair and non-discriminatory engagement with stakeholders, avoidance of conflict of interest and intolerance of corrupt practices.

To protect and enhance shareholder value, the APRIL Board of Directors has established an Executive Committee (EXCO) to oversee corporate governance and take overall management and control of all entities within APRIL Group. In addition, the EXCO supervises business affairs and operations of APRIL Group. The Executive Committee determines and reviews the business direction and overall strategy of APRIL Group, its financial objectives, control and performance, risk management and human resource allocation.

To ensure smooth operations and facilitate decision-making, the EXCO has delegated certain functions to the APRIL Group Management Team (Management Team). The Management Team is tasked with specific matters such as ensuring that APRIL Group’s strategic direction is on track, performance reviews, market updates, risk management and organisational development.

Management Team members are entitled to full access to the information required to discharge their responsibilities, including unrestricted access to all senior personnel as well as the internal and external auditors.
